Dear Ted

Happy Birthday Ted!

You would’ve been 36, had you not decided to leave earlier. The guys and I are okay now, we have accepted it. We have moved on but, we’re sorry we can’t let you go. We still miss you – a lot. Specially on occasions like this. This date had always been a happy time for us until six years ago.

Pero ayoko nang malungkot. Gusto ko na lang isipin lahat ng masasaya. Ang mga pasabog, ang mga eksena sa araw na ‘to. Naaalala mo ba yung isang celebration mo na lumabas ka at humarap sa mga bisita mo na naka-bikini? E nung nililibing mo yung mga nakatulog sa kalasingan? Yung tinatanong mo kung ano yung nasa zipper mo, nota mo na pala – nakalabas? Nakakatawa lang na sa dami ng nangyari, halos hindi ko na alam kung birthday mo nga ba yun o lasing ka lang nun.

Ang daya mo kasi girl e. Hindi mo man lang kami binigyan ng pagkakataong pigilan ka, Pero tapos na un, ok na kami. Kami na lang mag cecelebrate, makitagay ka na lang sa min, pa shotin mo na rin si San Pedro. Bawat araw, ipinananalangin namin na masaya ka. Sana, dyan mo natagpuan yung hindi mo makitang kaligayahan dito.

“I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Standin’ on the edge of something much too deep
It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard

But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories”

— I Will Remember You
